Living Legend!

Singer-songwriter Bruce Cockburn returns with his 34th studio album!

“Crowing Ignites” is an instrumental album and that is surprising considering how talented a wordsmith Cockburn is. Perhaps, Cockburn wanted the music to speak for itself, in an era where talk is cheep (sorry couldn’t resist!).

Cockburn does a good job in covering various music genres in the 11 tracks here. Folk (“Bardo Rush”), blues (“Blind Willie”), minimalist art-rock (“Seven Daggers) and jazz (“The Mt. Lefroy Waltz”).

There’s even a nod to his 80s pop heyday with “Sweetness and Light” which recalls the catchy rhythms of his hit “Wondering Where the Lions Are”. Something for every Cockburn fan here.

still there’s more
